- Sustainable Landscaping

Best Management Practices
Basic techniques to start, rejuvenate or troubleshoot any garden – ornamental or vegetable – and keep it thriving.
Techniques for the design, construction and management of landscapes in built environments that conserve storm water, reduce pollution, integrate locally native plants to support wildlife, and reduce or eliminate the uses of fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and fossil fuel inputs.
Techniques for successfully growing vegetables, herbs and fruit in urban and suburban landscapes – whether backyards, front yards, rooftop gardens, balconies, school yards or community gardens – for you and your family and sharing the harvest largesse with others.
Online Public Education Classes & Glencarlyn Videos
Enjoy our complete collection of videos from MGNV/VCE, organized by topic. There are two types of videos in our collection:
- Public Education Classes: These include a webpage with the class video and additional resources. These videos are close-captioned and have chapter breaks so you can pick and choose which section to watch.
- Glencarlyn Library Community Garden videos: These short videos, created by the coordinators of Glencarlyn, provide an alternative, distanced means to access the educational content offered at the garden’s annual AutumnFest event.
Glencarlyn videos are marked with an asterisk.
